Walk the Blenheim XC Course with 2014 Winner Francis Whittington

3 Aug 2016


Come along on Friday 9 Sept 2016 to walk the Blenheim XC Course with 2014 winner Francis Whittington at Blenheim Palace International Horse Trials.

Francis will be leading a course walk in aid of The British Horse Society, this year’s nominated charity at Blenheim Palace International Horse Trials. This is your chance to learn from one of the best cross-country riders on the circuit, renowned for his ability to make the time on even the toughest cross country tracks. Francis, who won the CCI3* here in 2014, will talk the group through each fence and explain his preferred lines at the combinations, how he paces his horse around the course, and more. Plus of course you can ask questions on the way around about his riding, horses, their management…whatever you’ve always wanted to find out from a top eventer!

Thanks to Francis’ sponsors, WOW Saddles, everyone taking part in this particular coursewalk will be given a free ticket for a prize draw to win a WOW Supercool Saddlecloth - see below for full details of this fantastic prize!
